Kind of a big paint job

There's a lot more work than just painting, but the amount of trim and crown molding makes it pretty difficult. Lots of corners and cutting in.

It was a seriously distressed mansion, starting to come together.

- Beautiful house. One of those costs a real fortune here.
Great painting. How much time will take?
What year is the House?

My cousin bought it with investor money. He's been fucking up for like a year because he doesn't know what he's doing and he''s the Jewiest Irish person that I know. Refuses to buy building materials. He wants to reuse 100 year old base. I just threw that shit away. He doesnt even know yet. His idiocy is a real headache.

He got it for like 150k because it was in such terrible condition. I think it'll be worth at least 500k when I'm done. Maybe more if he wasn't such a cheap ass. Kind of a strange neighborhood. If you go in one direction, you are in the ghetto. If you go in the other It's a bunch of million dollar homes.
